In The number of non-native forest pest species established in the U.S. was estimated at between (Millers et al. ) and (Mattson et al., ; Liebhold et al., ).; The area suffering the greatest numbers and impacts was the Northeast. Hundreds of species of non-native (aka alien or exotic) invasive forest insects, diseases, plants, and other organisms are established in the United States. Some of these species have become invasive, spreading rapidly and causing significant economic and ecological impacts to the nation's forest and urban trees.
When pests and diseases do begin to appear, they may come from two sources. A complex of indigenous agents may adapt to the new host or exotic pests may be accidentally introduced. Indigenous pests and diseases. A number of examples of indigenous insects adapting to . Introduction of forest exotic pests Forest insect pests and diseases are usually intro-duced non-intentionally. They lie hidden in soil, seed, bonsai and other nursery stock, logs, pallets, and many wood products. Consumption and trade in forest products alone Cited by:
IMPACTS OF INSECTS IN FOREST LANDSCAPES: IMPLICATIONS FOR FOREST HEALTH MANAGEMENT 1. INTRODUCTION The devastating forest fires and catastrophic outbreaks of both native and introduced forest insect and disease pests, witnessed in recent times throughout North America, are in part a consequence of forest management practices of the last century. Plant pests and diseases Australia is lucky to be free from many of the world’s most damaging plant pests. Exotic plant pests are capable of damaging our natural environment, destroying our food production and agriculture industries, and some could change our way of life.

species. This proportion (27%) is slightly less than the proportion of agricultural pests that are exotic (40%) but the impacts of exotic pests on forestry are characteristically severe (EltonPimentel ).
The increasing load of pest species is likely to result in large and long. In this article series, I will review the more serious exotic forest pests.
O exotic species have been introduced into North America, and most have proven to be useful to humans and benign to the natural environment. Most exotic introductions fail to establish, but some have grown invasive and damaging. Exotic Pests: Major Threats to Forest Health of these organisms have the potential to become serious pests.

Britton, USDA Forest Service & TN. Forest insects and diseases, particularly those introduced from overseas through international trade, are having widespread and substantial impacts on the ecological function and economic value of North American forest ecosystems [1,2].They may, in fact, pose the most pervasive and important threat to forests in the region .Nearly two-thirds of the forestland in the United States ( Cited by: 3.

The spread of non-indigenous or alien forest pests 1 is a growing threat to North American forests, its international trade in forest and other products, and communities dependent on healthy forests and forest industries.
The spread of invasive organisms, including alien forest pests, is increasingly recognized as a global issue that has wide implications for biodiversity. Forest structure is the horizontal and vertical distribution of plant material, including ground vegetation and dead or fallen woody material, shrubs, and understory, midstory, and overstory trees (Bennett, ).Structure also concerns the age distribution of the trees in the forest.
We need to better understand how to control exotic invasive forest insects, including cultural, biological, microbial, and chemical control methods. To have successful eradication or suppression programs for exotic invasive forest insects, we must be able to dramatically lower their population levels.
We will develop efficient, effective, and environmentally safe methods to control exotic. Project Methods Sub-Project I. REDBAY AMBROSIA BEETLE AND LAUREL WILT DISEASE: ECOLOGICAL IMPACTS, ECO-PHYSIOLOGY, AND INVASION s:Hypothesis: Low temperatures will limit the invasion potential of X.
